My daughter had a horrible first day at swimming lessons on Tuesday. She fell in the pool once, inhaled water while practicing her stroking once, and then the teacher got distracted with another kid while trying to put my daughter back on the step and missed the step, which resulted in my daughter getting another breathful of water. It was rather traumatic, so I wasn't surprised when she didn't want to get dressed for swimming lessons on Wednesday. After a while of pleading, ordering, and cajoling, I resorted to bribery. "Honey, get your swimming suit on, and you can have some of my Coke," to which she said "OK," and got dressed.
So, I give her some Coke. She drinks it, and says yum.
Then she takes the swimming suit off.
Lesson: be specific with your bribes.
